Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

Great location in secure gated community, 3 pools; 10mins from Murcia airport

Our two-bedroom, one-bathroom air-conditioned penthouse apartment with free Wi-Fi is right at the front of the Puerto Marina gated community. It is south-east facing and has sea views from the Juliet balconies in both bedrooms, and from the large, south-facing terrace, which keeps the sun on it all day. It also has panoramic views from our private rooftop solarium, which is beautifully furnished with easy chairs and sunbeds.

Our apartment is perfectly-located for all the essential ingredients of a beach holiday. Everything is within a 15-minute walk on flat terrain, and it's close to Murcia airport, so a car is not needed. Within a 5-minute walk are Lidl and Mercadona supermarkets and a pedestrianised parade of cafes, restaurants, bars and local shops.

Puerto Marina is the most recently-built, secure gated community in Los Alcazares. It is beautifully maintained and pushchair/wheelchair-accessible throughout. It has 3 swimming pools, each with adjacent shallow children's pool, and a high level of security - key access is required to enter through the community's perimeter gates, as well as to each block of apartments.

Within a 10-15 minute walk, at the end of the parade, is an amazing stretch of beach with fine golden sand and the shallow, calm sea water of the Mar Menor lagoon. This is reputed to be up to 5C warmer than the Mediterranean Sea. It is safe for toddlers and its shallow depth means it is home to a wide range of water sports in the summer months. The beach stretches for miles and is flanked by a 4-mile long beachfront promenade which is a year-round home to cyclists, runners, strollers and dog walkers. There are small beach bars/cafes and children's playgrounds at regular intervals.

About Steve

We are a couple with three young children, living in Yorkshire, England. For many years we have rented private apartments for our holidays, booked from Owners Direct. We finally decided we'd like to buy our own place, furnish it beautifully, and rent it out for others to enjoy. We viewed over 20 properties and this was our favourite by some distance.

Steve purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Steve chose Cartagena & Mar Menor

We viewed properties up and down the Costa Calida and southern Costa Blanca and found Los Alcazares was the location that had everything we were looking for within walking distance, and close to the airport. We believe Puerto Marina is the best secure community in the town.

What makes this apartment unique

We love the child-friendliness of the complex, pools and local area, as well as the proximity of the beach, the long beachfront promenade, and the great choice of local cafes, bars and restaurants.

This is a excellent apartment we are currently here for a 3 month winter stay and can't fault the apartment or Steve the owner he is so helpful. We have had sunshine from morning till dusk due to the location of the apartment, clean complex and everything on your doorstep. Would highly recommend.

Good Holiday Apartment

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for 4 weeks, the apartment had everything you would need to self cater. The complex was beautifully maintained and very safe. The location was great with shops and restaurants within a few minutes. Certainly recommend hiring cycles.

Fabulous apartment with perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Murcia and it will certainly not be our last. This apartment is in a fantastic location, 5 minutes walk from 3 supermarkets, practically across 2 roads to the main strip which is full of restaurants and bars. And the bonus, less than 10 minutes from the beach and that's walking with 5 year olds. The apartment itself has all the amenities you would need including air con. It's spotlessly clean and has beautiful views from the balcony if you are looking for a quiet night in sitting with a glass of wine or two. The complex pools are beautiful and the kids had hours of fun. Steve, the apartment owner was really helpful and provides plenty of advice on the area and booked us a taxi to and from the airport. 100% recommend this apartment and we will be booking for next year again.

fab apartment Eleanor and Geoff from Scotland

  • 5 of 5

Fab apartment everything you could possibly need and more for a holiday home, spotlessly clean and great complex, Steve made everything so easy and always answered our emails quickly. We have been to the area may times before but this by far the best apartment we have stayed in. So close to the great restaurants and bars never had a bad meal yet, something for everyone from Chinese Indian Italian Mexican even a fab chippy. would definitely recommend the apartment for couples or young families.

Relaxing, stress free and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This property is one of the best we have stayed in! From first enquiry to returning home, Steve's communication has been quick, thorough and helpful. The property itself is very clean and equipment and furniture is of excellent quality. The transfer with his agent was quick and she was extremely friendly and helpful too. We had 5 adults staying in the property and there was more than enough room for us all with plenty of seating inside and outside on the balcony and roof terrace. We have been coming to Los Alcazares for 10 years and will continue to do so, as the town and facilities have everything we need just a stroll away. We did have access to a car this year and went on a few trips up and down the coast which added to make this year's holiday fantastic. We didn't want to come home and will be definitely be booking again. Tricia, David and family, near Leeds.
